Mysterious Ways

Sick child in bed

We got this email from my son’s indoctrination camp (grammatical errors included):

It is my unfortunate duty to inform you that we have a confirmed case of the H1N1 virus . . .

We understand that there a considerable number of students and staff who became ill on the last day of camp or just after returning home. . . .

While getting people sick is not something we want and definitely not something we like, the riches of Christ being shared at camp far outweighs the risk of illness and that we’re praying for all those who are affected that they will be well soon.

God moves in mysterious ways. Like why didn’t He send the swine flu to the Atheist Kids camp?

And I don’t let the camp staff off the hook. Why didn’t they pray before the camp that no one would get swine flu instead of waiting till it was too late and praying for them to get well again?

“It was meant to be,” my wife says, although fortunately our own kid is not sick . . .
